Re: Skill Experience Cost

I've been swimming through the wiki for a while, but one thing I can't seem to figure out is the cost, in experience, of raising a skill. Assuming an aptitude of 0, what is the formula to determine the xp required to raise a skill? const int exp[28] = { 0, 50, 150, 300, 500, 750, // 0-5 1050, 1400,...

Re: CiP LOFE enchant IDA or not?

If you have xp to spare its definitely worth investing some EVO for the new evokers. I usually aim for somewhere around 13 skill if I'm going to be using them frequently. They are still useful at lower skill levels but you don't get as many minions summoned per use.

The specific school is more important than spell casting for success percentage, but given that you're at 16 charms/0 spell casting, you're best bang for the buck is probably get spell casting to around 5 and then put more into charms if you need to.
